Trent Williams’ emotions get best of him in scuffle
“Just high emotions, man. You know I let ‘em get the best of me. It’s nobody’s fault but mine,” Williams said. “I’ve got to calm down a little bit. When you lose a game like this with high intensity, I was a little on edge. I reacted in an immature manner.”
The 24-year-old left tackle took responsibility for his actions.
“I’m taught better than that. I’ve just got to be better, man,” Williams said. “It’s my first playoff run and I had a season end like that and then to kind of be taunted, it takes a bigger man to walk away the next time. I’ve just got to be a bigger man.”
Lichtensteiger limps off
Kory Lichtensteiger didn’t practice all week because of a sprained left ankle, but he started Sunday against the Seahawks after testing it before the game.
Very early on, though, the veteran left guard had to leave the game and give way to rookie Josh LeRibeus.
“I just felt like when I really tried to push into [Alan] Branch, something kind of gave way. I didn’t have the stability, I guess,” Lichtensteiger said. “I didn’t think stability was going to be a problem. But I didn’t have the strength in there that I thought I did.”
Lichtensteiger said last week he knew he would have to do more than jog to feel good about playing on the ankle. He did.
“I tried to simulate about everything that we do in our offense and it all felt good. I was pushing against big Doug Worthington and everything felt good,” Lichtensteiger said. “I guess you can’t really simulate game speed when somebody’s really coming into you. So I think that’s what it was. I just, I guess, overestimated how good it was feeling.”
Rocca bombs punts
Punter Sav Rocca’s right knee hasn’t been nearly as scrutinized as Robert Griffin III’s, but he has been playing with a torn meniscus for the past few months.
